US ALLIANCE OF CHURCHES ACCUSE WASHINGTON OF 'RAINING DOWN TERROR' ON THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ
The Bush White House and Rumsfeld's Pentagon have been accused by an alliance of churches of engaging in terrorism and mass slaughter.
"Our country responded (to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks) by seeking to reclaim a privileged and secure place in the world, raining down terror on the truly vulnerable among our global neighbours . . . entering into imperial projects that seek to dominate and control for the sake of national interests. Nations have been demonized and God has been enlisted in national agendas that are nothing short of idolatrous."
This is an excerpt from a statement issued at the largest gathering of Christian churches in nearly ten years.
